View Full Version : Stuck on 87kg

03-15-2018, 10:58 PM
Hey Guys,

I've been gyming for about 3-4 years now and just feel like i've never really had a good body.

I have gone from 'bulking' which lead to a fair bit of fat gain and not really much strength, to doing a bit of a cut with a personal trainer and tightening up my diet.

At the moment, im on 87kg and my diet is this:

4 eggs scrambled
2 slices wholegrain brown bread
Smashed avocado

Meal 2 - Smoothie (had in the morning on non training days or after workout on training days)
1/2 cup of oats
250ml almond milk
1 serving WPI protein powder

Meal 3 - Lunch
1 cup brown rice
150-200gm Chicken (usually grilled or poached) OR 150-200gm Salmon
Serving of greens (usually lettuce or broc****ni)

Meal 4 - Snack
2 slices wholegrain bread
Smashed avocado
100gm lean turkey breast

Meal 5 - Dinner
1/2 cup of brown rice
150gm-200gm chicken or fish
1 serving of vegetables

Meal 6 - Dessert
200gm greek yoghurt
handful of almonds
1 cup of oats
serving of protein powder (WPI)

That totals around 13,000kj (3130 calories) and the macros are 280g protein, 102g fat, 256g carbs

My workout routine is:

Chest and biceps day
Bench Press (4 sets x 10,8,8,8)
Incline Bench Press (4 sets x 10,8,8,8)
Incline Flys (4 sets x 10,8,8,8)

Back and Tricep day

Dips for triceps (4 sets with 10kg weight x 15,15,15,15)
Plank (4 x 1 min)
Russian twists (4x 30 seconds)

Cardio day/functional workout.

45 minute functional workout. This consists of 8 exercises (box jumps, trx pulls etc) and I do each exercise for 30 seconds with a 25 second rest in between. I then complete 4 circuits in total with 2min in between each circuit. It tkes approximately 45-47 mins to complete.

Im not sure what to do. I've been stuck on this weight for a while and not really progressing or seeing any gains. What are the suggestions to take my body to the next level?

Eat less, move more, or both.

If your weight isn't changing then you're eating at maintenance and need to adjust calories, up them to gain or reduce to cut, depending what your goal is now.

What is your current goal?

Gain muscle with minimal fat gain = small calorie surplus.

lose fat while maintaining lean mass = 10% calorie deficit.

weight management is all about calories. Input and Output.

as for your protein try to have that at around a grab per lb of mass.

fat intake at around 25% of your calorie intake and the rest made up of carbs (dont go over board).

I would be slashing those carbs way down. To like 100-150g and timing the bulk of them prior to workout from a whole grain source. You eat alot of cals, it is no surprise that you ain't losing. You could also save a few bucks by incorporating salads with olive oil instead of consuming pricey avocados everyday.
